Lorrie is a visual artist and designer based in Chichester. Lorrie specialises in painting, illustration and photography. Her influences range from the Renaissance, Baroque and Romantic, to the Post Modernist, and she is deeply influenced by the iconography and art of the Celtic La Tene period.
Her work embodies a diverse and eclectic flavour and Lorrie’s keen eye for colour, form and symmetry, mainly abstract in nature, is easily recognisable. Recent work has incorporated the themes of nature and has been inspired by the sea, oceans and the flora and fauna contained within.
Lorrie has a solo show entitled ‘Against the Tide’ in June at the Oxmarket Centre of Arts, Chichester, before exhibiting at Chichester Copywriter’s Writers’ Retreat, Cobnor in August.
Additionally, Lorrie is editor of Chichester Creative Network magazine, an online magazine supporting the creative industries, enterprises and individuals in the Chichester and West Sussex area, and is also part of the editorial team for UK Handmade, an online magazine featuring UK based Artists, Designers and Artisan Crafts. Lorrie also occasionally contributes articles to Creative Boom Magazine.
‘Sea Dreams’: Exhibition of Paintings and Illustrations by Lorrie Whittington
The weekend of Friday 26th to Sunday 28th August, 2011, Lorrie will be presenting an exhibition of her sea inspired work. There will be a theme of “the sea” running throughout the retreat weekend and we know that Lorrie’s beautiful work will enthuse creative writers attending the retreat weekend. There will also be a wonderful opportunity for guests attending the Friday night event to take a taste of the coast home with them as Lorrie’s art, comprising postcards, Aceo prints and original paintings and illustrations, will be on sale.
